ComicBookResources has the preview of issue #5 as the class goes on a field trip.

I was just at the Great Barrier Reef in December, with vivid memories of being at the water with so much beauty.
This brought it all back, and then some!

This is so much fun... :)

Oh my GOD this is amazing. Literally, just about every line of dialogue makes me laugh and my heart warm. XD

There is nothing wrong with this title. Everything is beautiful and fun, and nothing hurts.

(The long-time X-Fan in me wants to start a betting pool on how long that will last.)

Ummm.... Kid Gladiator isn't Shi'ar, he's Strontian.

And nowadays I can't watch "mini people inside a human body" scenarios without this coming to mind. :)

I can see where that would cause neural scarring.

Her and the rest of her class. While Idie's self-loathing is psychologically damaging, she's actually not the worst in her class as there's minimal risk of immediate self-harm.

But I think that Aaron's written himself into a corner on this one; either he acknowledges Idie and then has to acknowledge that there are other characters who are actually more acutely at risk ... or he has to keep playing Idie's psychological damage for laughs.

Given her powers are manifesting extremes of temperature I don't think it's SELF harm I'd be worried about.

I see Idie's issues as being a more extreme version of Rahne Sinclair's early issues, complete self-loathing about being a mutant and convinced she's intrinsically evil. .

I do; it doesn't seem in character for Idie to hurt her classmates, but she manifests self-hatred every time she talks. Her issues are internally directed rather than externally and she's the type to implode rather than explode. She's not really the type to externalise her issues?

But yes, Idie has deep self-hatred issues, more so than the average mutant (though the more recent generations of mutants all have some degree of self-hatred). The thing is, some of her classmates are more acutely at risk, and it seems pretty consistent that they don't help her as they aren't helping these students either.

I think it's Toad's. They better be careful, as his genes are more mutable than most.

Definitely Ms. Frizzle. He needs to be doing some equivalent classes for the Avengers Academy and the Future Foundation kids.

Quentin: Okkkk, I'm an Omega Level Mutant and that girl scares me....

I'm never quite sure how to feel about Idie. That poor poor girl. Still her and little Brood are adorable together.

Quentin's run up against a cultural difference. That's what a proper Nigerian girl is supposed to tell a potential beau. I'm thinking of using it as an example in my ongoing talks with my children about birth control.

... The X-gene (or possibly its chromosome) is free-floating in the bloodstream? Or maybe the lungs? (Seriously, where are they? I see what looks like RBCs flowing along... but there's a sealed blood vessel passing through it, so they can't be in an artery...)

The biology grad in me is cringing and whimpering "that is not how DNA works". More than usual, even. That's just... painful.

(In theory I like the X-Men; but sometimes when I'm low on suspension-of-disbelief pills my inner genetics geek breaks out and starts flailing in shame.)

I know, right?

The rest of the page is cute and funny and all, but I see the 'x-gene' and everything else is overridden by just how wrong it is. Heck, looking at the spread, I don't see anything that works the way it's presented.

Aaron and Bradshaw are good at comics, but apparently they failed high school science hard.

Perhaps he's implying that this sort of non-standard biology surrounding them is the end result of the x-gene?

Some things expressed in the comics have pointed towards mutants having more differences than the genetic part or however their powers manifest.
I know Beast has made comments that mutants are more durable/heal faster than humans and of course Cerebro/Cerebra work on the basis that mutant brainwaves differ from human ones.

Also Celestials messed with Earth's evolution and introduced the potential for X-genes so who knows how Comic Book Biology works. Comic Book Science in general is pretty wacky.

Huh... how come when the Xaiver School became public, the kids there didn't had that much awesome stuff as the Jean school?

Budget constraints? And, in fairness, we have yet to see if this approach is worth the extra time and money involved.

Yes, Logan has to deal with financial issues but appears to have had a massive start up fund which Xavier never did (not on THAT scale) and now maintains a much larger and more complicated facility than Xavier did.

You'd think Bobby, superhero CPA, might have mentioned at some point " one good brawl, and this place is financially screwed. Contingency plan?" before the doors even opened.

Logan worried about it beforehand (noting that the opening had more or less wiped out his funds) and though a little late, Bobby DID bring it up

If memory serves, was Professor Xaiver already wealthy when he started the school?

Yes, but consider that when he opened the school there were five pretty well behaved students and one (existing) building that he already owned the freehold on. The Danger Room was complicated but mechanical, and Cerebro was a lot smaller. Most of his students were well behaved and rarely if ever destructive/ (All New X-Men, New Mutants, etc) When he upgraded to Shi'ar tech (Which he was given rather than purchased) a lot of tech became self-maintaining.

Logan has got a couple of dozen kids, some of whom are outright violent, and a HUGE high tech complex.
